RCID stands for Open Researcher and Contributor ID. It is a sixteen-digit permanent digital identifier for researchers. It is an international standard to help researchers to establish and maintain their scholarly identity. It aims to solve common issues such as:
- not getting credit for your research because your name is common or because you have published using a different version of your name
- struggling to find a central place to keep track of all your research outputs
- having to spend time entering the same information over and over in publisher and grant submission systems
